Was not the greatest meal I have had but passable, just. No complaints from the other ten in the party. Good job we went, it was a Saturday night and there was only another two people dining. Enough said!

Rooms clean and offer everything needed for a visit to a beautiful area. Excellent food with freshly cooked breakfast and plenty of coffee. Lovely rural location and loved the train theme especially the model train running overhead. Family friendly offering great place to stay or just visit to have a meal.

Think it was late June early July this year we stopped off at the Great Western. Went with me Nan and 5yo daughter. The food wasn't the cheapest, but it was really nice, so worth the money.

We really enjoyed the very generous portions of the roast dinner I couldn't even eat it all. We will certainly go again & take family for a very enjoyable Sunday lunch at a great price. Thanks for a wonderful meal

Excellent value for money. Very welcoming, lovely clean rooms with everything you need in them. Would most definitely book again if need a place to stay in Southam again. Easy to find and very peaceful surroundings. Loved the train running around the restaurant., and lovely play area for little ones.

We went for lunch with our children today, they had a fail safe children's menu that was the perfect size. There were lots of choice on the menu for the adults. It was freshly cooked and meat sorted locally. We didn't have to wait too long as were made to feel welcome. The new play equitment outside was brilliant fun...

Stayed b&b for one night. I was able to check in at 11 which was great. Had a nice welcome from the owner. Had a quick lunch in the nice bar area. Great nights sleep, nice room, great shower, comfy bed. Breakfast was requested at 08:30, and was a good sized cooked breakfast with fresh coffee! If I'm in the...

Definitely going...
